Chivalry is NOT Dead!
Today the kids and I had some errands to
run. We were about to get out of our van
and run into Joanne Fabric when a couple
pulled in in front of us.
This couple was most likely in their mid
to late sixties. We could not help but
stare as this gentleman got out of the car
alone. He walked around the car and came
to the passenger door. He then opened the
door for his smiling wife.
All at the same time Chelsea, Jonathan and
I exclaimed how cool that was!
We were struck by how rare this has become
in our day and age.
Chivalry is not dead!!!
This evening I was leaving a building and
was met by a man and his wife entering.
I let the wife come past me and the husband
held the door for me. I thanked him.
He said, "You are VERY welcome!"
Oh. My. Goodness.
I love this!
Chivalry is not dead!
Very often I am saddened by the lack of
respect I observe around me...but today was
a good "people watching" day.
Just wanted to share the great news.
...In case you were planning a funeral.
Many thanks to Allposters for these fun
photos that fit the subject.
